Having been playing with some new things in Debian, like the magicfilter package, which is a superb, lightweight solution to all my printing problems: to use a PCL 3 printer. I think that I will also "manufacture" a solution with a metapackage of a live CD that includes the environment that I use frequently, with the packages that I use (this is probably quite leaner than what Ubuntu has done with their distribution, since I will mainly use some lighter packages).

Oh, talking about lighter packages, I see that Debian has adopted a new C library, namely EGLIBC, which stands for Embedded LIBC. Finally, it seems that Debian will focus a bit more on smaller systems (which is a good thing, because computing resources are limited).
